That Audi V8 looks very good...I like that they chose the later BBS rims, too.

I don't know too much about foreign makes, but does the Opel have anything to do with the Ford Tempo? They look very similar ;)

Thanks!!!

Not at all. Opel does work with GM. In South America it was a Chevrolet Senator, UK as a Vauxhall Royale, and a Holden Commodore in Australia.

Looks like a Mark 2 to me - those are certainly the later wheels.

Nice looking model either way :)

I have spent a lot of money this month, and kind wish I would have held off a bit longer. BoS has just released some awesome models. The Iso and Maserati will be added. They are amazing cars.

These are all 1/18

Panamericana looks weird to me.  But +1 on the Iso Griffo and Maserati, they look great.  Tempted to pick up their Fiat Dino too.

A few more, exclusive to Model Car World...and to me the Mille Miglia is worth getting. There are not a lot of Mille Miglia race cars out there.

I agree completely. I actually just ordered the Iso and Maserati. For a few months now I have been looking at adding the Maserati as a 1/43 thinking it would never make it to the 1/18 scale. And it has!!!! I could not pass it up. And the Iso has been on my most wanted list. While the color is not the most desirable for me, it is unique and will look great with my so many red sports cars from the era.

I might get the Lotus down the line. It is cool, but I can't keep buying models right now.

That Iso Grifo is an inspired release. Will be adding this one for sure, one of my favourite Italian classics. Not so sure on the Maserati though. Kudos to BoS for going down the path less travelled.

Are BoS models any good? I notice the BMW 2500 (and also seen the 1600 GT).

Are they metal or resin? According to Modelissimo, 'nothing to be opened'. :(

They are resin and slightly overpriced, as the details are scarce and the interiors are mostly shocking. Very interesting subject matter though
I mod stuff

Some of their models are really nice. Some are very simply and lack luster. I just received the new Iso Griffo and Maserati. The Maserati is not great. The wheels are very cheap and the interior is sparse. The overall weight is about half of their other models. The Iso is good though.

I have both. 1600 GT is good, that was first BMW and one of the first models for BoS so they did it right. 1500 on the other side has issues with lines. If you take a closer look you will notice that main line is braking and it is not straight. It is more curve near the A pillar. There might be few more errors but that is the biggest one. . .

Also, those are only scale models for those cars so if you want them, it is not like you have a chose. . .

How do they compare with Otto models? I have one and its not perfect but they are the only ones to make that model...

Ok that's bad! Mind you I'm not sure my Otto model is much better... I'll have a look tonight.

I have two from them, the prototype VW Beetle & the Bentley Flying Star, both are nice models with perfect paint, detail wise they're not bad, but not excellent. Imo they're sort of a more expensive OTTO, but they're not as good as GT Spirit.

F**k you Photobucket.
